"Don't Understand Selection Committee": Dinesh Karthik Questions Star's Exclusion From South Zone's Duleep Trophy Squad
Hanuma Vihari and Mayank Agarwal were named captain and vice-captain of South Zone for the upcoming Duleep Trophy.
Veteran cricketer Dinesh Karthik has questioned the exclusion of wicketkeeper-batter Baba Indrajith from South Zone's squad for the upcoming Duleep Trophy. The competition will feature six teams based out of different zones of India - North, South, East, West, Central and North East. The tournament is expected to take place between June 28 to July 14. The South Zone squad was picked after the selectors of all associations met on Tuesday, June 13.
However, Indrajith, who last played a List-A match in March 2023, did not find a place in the squad.
"I DONT understand selection committee these days. BABA INDRAJITH plays for Rest of India against MP in the first week of March 2023. There has been no first class matches post that , but he doesn't feature for SOUTH ZONE in the duleep trophy. Can someone tell me why??," Karthik captioned the post.
